Pours golden, with a frothy, belgian head, typical of the style.

On the nose, very fruity, some funk in the background (I let this bottle age a little bit) which is subtle. The apricots come through on the nose nicely.

Taste and mouthfeel is where this beer shines! The wine barrel and apricot mask what could be a "boozy" beer. Hardly any alcohol taste, and very pleasing to the palette.

I highly recommend this beer. I had it "new" then aged a bottle for 6 months, and found that it aged well, with a slight bit of funk. It could sour over time, which may make it more complex. I throughly enjoyed it.

Poured into a long stemmed tulip glass from a 22oz bottle.

Pours a nice clear and clean bright golden (pun) yellow color with a nice tall and pillowy white head that is about 2 inches tall. The bubbles are dense and slowly unravel into a chunky sticky mess.

Aroma is nice. Notes of clove and spice. Coriander and mild pepper with some nice slight tartness present. Notes of orchard fruit sweetness such as apple and pears with some nice peach and apricot notes as expected. SLight woody notes and dryness also present.

Flavor starts off more vinous and dry than the nose would indicate. Nice vinous tartness as well. There is some nice phenolic sweetness that is perceived in the flavor from the yeast. Slight bandaid notes mixed in with the sweet/tart notes of apricot and wine barrels. The brew is nice and carbonated and the mouthfeel is prefect for the style and flavor profile.
